I was born in Trivandrum, Kerala India. I immigrated to Canada with my parents at the age of two.
I swore allegiance to HM Queen Elizabeth Queen of Canada in 1974 and became a Canadian citizen. I am Canadian , but I am still very proud of my Bharat. I wish India well on its 63rd anniversary of Independance ( one day late).
The Indian diaspora has done remarkably well wherever we have gone. Our parents have told us to work hard and get an education at all costs. here is Russell Peters in India
It is an amazing place to visit.
We should encourage stronger ties to India. It is an emerging economic giant and a democracy. I consider it part of the Anglosphere.
